Many of our designs have multiple via styles including different sizes and different layer spans.
I am working on a 14-layer design and need to find all the vias that span from L1-6. I have the layer labels turned on and can see all the 1:6 vias, but the problem is that I have hundreds and hundreds of them. I was looking for a way to highlight a specific VIA style, but couldn't come up with a slick way of doing this. I have turned off all layers below L6, but I still have 1:2,1:4, 1:10 and thru vias that stay turned on.
I would love to make these 1:6 vias all bright yellow so I can see them quickly.
Use Display/Assign Color with a find by query
Can you elaborate on the query? I can't select via types.
Which version of the tool are you running? Query is probably one of the most obtuse "features" of the tool but it does work for these kinds of searches. I'll post a few screenshots once I know which version to do.
